Greenville Salesman in Thom
son When List Respects
Paid Late Senator.
"Traveling men encounter various
experiences " in their trips on the
Toad," declared W. G. Gresham,
traveling salesman of Greenville, who
covers the states of Georgia and
Florida, "but one that I never shall
forget was that at Thomson, Geor
gia, last Thursday when thousands
of persons flocked to pay a last mark
of respect of their departed leader
and citizen, Tom Watson."
Mr. Gresham, who was in the city
yesterday, said jthat automobiles
were parked for two miles in each
. direction -from the Watson home,
motorists being compelled to walk
the remainde. of the distance. More
than thal, in many places the auto
mobiles were parked two and three
deep, so anxious were those who had
come from a distance to be present
at the funeral services.
ti "The anguish of hundreds of per
sons was touching," Mr. Gresham
said. "Hundreds and hundreds, who
knew Mr. Watson as a personal as
well as political friend mourned as
though they had lost a brother..
From early morning until the last
dirt had been heaped beneath the
flower. covered mound, dustcovered
cars came to Thomson from all di
rections. The smaller and more in
expensive cars seemed to predomi
nate, but there were handsome cars
too, showing that the high as well as
the humble mourned the passing of
Mr. Gresham said that it was diffi
cult for one in this part of the coun
try to conceive of the vast throng
that swarmed into Thomson for the
funeral services. While the railways
conveyed many to Thomson, it was
the highways that brought the ma
jority of those into the city as a last
mark of respect for the late senator.
"Throughout South Georgia it
seemed that business was suspended,"
Mr. Gresham said, "because of the
numbers who had gone to Thomson
to attend the funeral services. It
were as though an entire section if
not a state joined hands in mourning
the departure of a native son. I
probably will never again see such a
dust covered throng and so many
down-cast countenances as I did at
Thomson last week."-Spartanburg

Is Dairying Profitable?
Is dairying profitable, and if so,
when? is a question-asked by D. G.
Sullins, of the Georgia Experiment
Station, in a recent bulletin. In ans
wering his own question Mr. Sullins
says : "
"On nearly every dairy farm a few
cows are kept at an excellent profit,
some at a small profit and some at
an actual loss. A study of any herd, of
cows, unless they have been very
carefully selected, will show that
there are wide variations in the pro
duction of milk and butter fat and in
the ecenoi?iy of production. There
are always individuals in a herd which
produce milk more efficiently than
other individuals, making it possible
to grade the cows according to their
production and cost to the owner.
"Keeping a daily milk record and
making fat tests at regular intervals
is the only satisfactory method of
determining what individual cows- do
with the feed given them. The cost,
of keeping such a record is small and
is more than offset by the advantages
to be had from the record. Having a
daily milk record makes it possible
to feed cows with the greatest econ
omy. Such records enable the Herds-,
man to detect sickness quicker than
otherwise would be possible. This in
I turn enables him to avoid the use of
unwholesome milk and to give prompt
attention to animals in poor health.
Daily records also make it possible
to judge the work of different milk
ers. Experiments have shown that
with certain cows some milkers are
able to get as much as 25 per cent
more milk than others.
"The greatest advantage to be had :
in having a record showing the in
dividuality of cows, of course, is mak
ing it possible to eliminate the un
profitable ones and build up herds.
A milker might be able to determine
a difference between the very best j
and poorest cows in a herd but he !
would not know how to draw the line
of distinction in its proper place
without a record. The cow giving the
greatest amount of milk is not neces
sarily the best cow. This holds true
also for the cow giving the richest
milk. Both quantity and quality must
be considered for it is the total fat.
production that counts.
"Beginners should study this mat
ter closely. In purchasing cows they
should obtain information concern
ing the actual value of animals un
der consideration. Poor milkers are
always for sale and cause most of the ?
discouragement among dairymen. A^'
few unprofitable cows probably caus
ed many dairymen to become discour
aged during the last few years. Such
discouragement might have been
avoided had the proper steps been
taken in selecting and eliminating
animals."-Farm and Ranch.
Keeping Sweet Potatoes.
Sweet potatoes should be thor
oughly dried out when dug before
they are stored or after if they are
to be kept. When dug they contain
an enormous amount of moisture and
will rot easily unless some of this
moisture is removed.
The sweet potato house or kiln
should be equipped with a stove or
furnace so the temperature may be
raised. This evaporates the moisture
and dries the potatoes. They will
When the potatoes are being dug
all injured specimens should be
thrown out. No specimens that are
not sound and free from disease
should be put in the kiln or house.
The potato house should be built
so it will be easily ventilated. Where
moisture accumulates -on the tubers
or in the house during w'nter the
temperature should be raised to evap
orate it.-Farm nad Ranch.

Are Jurors to Blame?
"When ws come .down to brass

in a special charge to the grand jury
of Greenwood county Saturday after
noon, after that body had brought in
its final presentment. Judge Rice cas
tigated the petit juries of the state
for failure to convict in homicide
cases, according to the Greenwood
Index-Journal,? characterized boot
leggers as the lowest type of citizens
in a community, blamed liquor for a
large percentage of crime against
'the person and declared that the law
against carrying weapons was entire
ly too lax.
There is much meat in this charge,
and it is something all citizens of
South Carolina should think about.
Much along this line has been said
previously, but the point cannot be
too deeply considered. Judge Rice is
quoted as saying:
"Conditions in South Carolina gen
erally, not so much in Greenwood and
Abbeville counties, are such that
ought to give all citizens concern,"
Judge Rice declared. "Charges are
made that juries don't mete out jus
tice. Atrocious murders have been
committed and white men charged
with the deeds have walked out free
men. Not one white man charged with
murder, tried before me, has been
sent to the electric chair. Is it pos
sible that all are innocent? Now in
four cases, the wounds of the dead
men were in the back, yet the men
who committed the deed had the face
to claim self defense, and juries al
lowed them to go free. Did those ju
ries believe the stories set up by these
men? It is unreasonable.
"In eighty per cent of the mur
ders, the murdered man does not
have a dog's chance for his life. How
jetit juries can take their oaths to
try them by the law and the evidence
and turn them loose is more.than I
"If we don't have justice in the
courts, whose fault is it? It is not the
solicitor's fault. All the judges can
do is to give a fair trial. What body
decides the guilt or i nnocence of the
accused? It is the p etit jury. When
we come down, to brass tacks, it is
the petit jury that is to blame.
"Executing a man for murder will
deter crime. Men are not going to kill
when they know they will pay the
death penally. When juries try cases
by th 2 law _:id the evidence, then
the jcri'me will decrease. A judge does
njt.vdare. intimate what he thinks in
a* trial. A man charged with murder
will swear anything. The state
doesn't want any innocent men con
victed. It does not demand that ju
ries give justice by trying cases by
the law and the evidence."-Green
